"Swann was critiquing his wife's performance and began getting angry with her", police said in the document.

Riggs noted that Swann has a temper and feared that the argument would evolve into physical violence, which is why she quickly exited the auto.

As previously reported, Swann was arrested for false imprisonment/kidnapping and a misdemeanor charge of battery - touching or striking against his wife Vannarah Riggs (indy wrestler Su Yung). Their story also confirmed that Swann's case has already been assigned a judge. He gave chase to his wife and yelled for her "to get back in the vehicle", police said in the arrest warrant. Another witness reported that the vehicle was not placed into park when Swann exited, continuing to roll while he chased after Riggs and crashing into a telephone pole.

As for his status with WWE: they were quick to release a statement yesterday following his arrest saying that they have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to domestic violence and they suspended Swann indefinitely right away. Swann said that he did not physically touch her. A witness allegedly observed this and saw Swann "shove her back in the auto while she screamed for help", the arrest document said. However, according to the Wrestling Observer, Swann is not expected to return to WWE. Riggs told police she was afraid of Swann because he "has a temper sometimes", the complaint said. His superb showing in the Cruiserweight Classic landed him a full-time spot on the roster, and he would defeat Brian Kendrick to become Cruiserweight Champion on the premier episode of 205 Live.
